    Super Friends Superman Production Cel and Master Background Setup (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1970s - 1980s). A diminutive image of Superman to be sure (he measures at just over 1" high), but is in perfect proportion to his surroundings - and what surroundings! A beautiful hand-painted production background, of a villain's foreboding hideout, perched high atop a rocky crag. This eerie fortress is situated under a darkening sky and a gloomy - and foggy - landscape; lots of gorgeous detail! Painting is in gouache on heavy watercolor paper. Cel is 12 field-sized, and the background image area measures 13" x 9.5". Very minor handling near edges; image unaffected. Cel is in Fine condition, background is in Very Good condition.
